…And more Jonathan Crane speedpaint birthday art, this time Nolanverse. Feels like a long time since I drew this version. Nice to give it a try again. Ink pens, bottled ink, watercolor, acrylic.

Apparently today (October 20, 1973) is Jonathan Crane’s birthday, so, Year One speedpaint. Had fun with the Rorschach-esque nightmare crow motif. Ink pens, bottled ink, watercolor, acrylic.

Was browsing through the TCM (Turner Classic Movies) listings for the week and several of my favorite classic horror/thriller films are coming on soon (EST):

Thur Oct 23:

  • 8-10pm — The Innocents (1961) [imdb]

Sat Oct 25:

  • 5:45-8pm — The Birds (1963) [imdb]
  • 8-10pm — The Haunting (1963) [imdb]

Mon Oct 27:

  • 2:15-4:15am — Diabolique (1955, French w/English subtitles) [imdb]
  • 4:15-6:15am — Gaslight (1944, Ingrid Bergman version) [imdb]

There were a few I haven’t seen but am planning to watch— The Uninvited (1944) on Thur Oct 23 at 10-12pm, The Woman in White (1948) on Thur Oct 23 at 12-2am, and the 1982 Angela Lansbury version of Sweeney Todd on Saturday Oct 25 at 2-4:30pm (excited about this one since I wasn’t too into Burton’s version).

Also Dario Argento’s lovely technicolor gore-fest Suspiria (1977) [imdb] is coming on IFC Sunday Oct 26 at 2:30-4:30am. I’ve never really been big on gore or slasher stuff, but Suspiria's kind of in a league of its own and worth watching for the art and direction. Still makes me think if Vogue made a horror movie.

Even if you don’t have tv or TCM/IFC, if you love scary stuff, horror, or just enjoyably well told stories and great film, these are at the top of my list. They’re mostly psychological, no gore (with the exception of Suspiria), no exploitation, just all around great classic films to watch for October or any season.

I see people complaining about how violent the creators have made Penguin in Gotham and all I can think is, wow. These people have seriously never played the Arkham games. Or even watched Batman Returns. Spend one afternoon in Arkham City's Iceberg Lounge. Gotham's Oswald is almost a picnic (with lots of stolen sammiches) after playing through those levels. Seriously.

"It’s like you run into this dark tunnel, trusting that somewhere there’s another end to it where you’re going to come out. And there’s a point in the middle where it’s just dark. There’s no light from where you came in and there’s no light at the other end; all you can do is keep running. And then you start to see a little light, and a little more light, and then, bam! You’re out in the sun." —Pete Docter

Life goal #857328: Learn how to make/sew hand puppets. Mostly just to amuse myself with puppet versions of characters I like, but with the added bonus of creeping people out because hey, puppets creep people out.

More tv sketches— finally catching up on the last of the Beware the Batman episodes. Magpie!

Decided to start doing tv sketches again, starting with episode 1x4 ‘Arkham’ of Gotham— Edward being a know-it-all at work and Oswald in his spiffy new suit with the cannoli box (leave your common sense, take the cannoli).

Gotham: A summary of Edward at work

If only Gordon and Bullock knew they were going to have to deal with Edward for the rest of their police careers, though not always as coworkers…

Bored and there’s nothing interesting on the DVR. Wishing it was Gotham Monday, Flash/SHIELD Tuesday, or Arrow Wednesday.

And here I was thinking there was going to be too many shows this autumn to keep up with :/
